New Baby Blanket

Lately I have been working on a new baby blanket pattern and I have finally finished it! I had started and stopped working on it a number of times due to other projects that needed more attention. This is the finished product and the pattern will be available soon!

This is actually a very simple pattern using double crochet stitches in alternating V-Stitch and Cluster stitches. The border around the blanket is also done in double crochet with Pico stitches to create the peaks. The end result is a beautiful blanket that is a perfect size for a newborn; 29″ x 31″ (74 cm by 79 cm)! I do have this listed in my Shop for sale and I also will take custom orders in any color(s) you choose. This is a perfect item to have on hand for a baby shower gift!

I also have completed a custom order for one of the elephant plush toys done in the Alabama Tide colors! Here are some pics of the item showing some of the progress and the finished product:

If you are interested in the pattern for the elephant toy, you can download it for free from Willow Yarns.

I don’t want to make this post a novel, so I will just highlight what I’ve been doing and working on in the last couple of months. I was updating my Etsy shop and working on projects and orders for customers during this time, but couldn’t find the spark of creativity to write a blog post. I really don’t know how else to explain my absence from WordPress!

Alright, let’s get down to business! Continue reading I’ve Been Absent For A While…
